Gasparilla is over, but dreary weather remains, and will continue for much of the week.
February's debut will be cloudy and breezy, with a few thunderstorms this week. The rain will start Monday night, meteorologists say.
Monday morning was chilly, around the upper 40s and low 50s across Tampa Bay, according to Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez.
Temperatures will climb to the low to mid 60s in the afternoon, which is below the day's average of 70, she said.
The rain should start this afternoon and last until Tuesday afternoon, said Rick Davis, National Weather Service meteorologist.
The cold front that brought showers over the weekend stalled and sent rain over South Florida, he said. But the front is heading back north, creating more rain for the bay area Monday night, he said.
Tuesday night and Wednesday should be dry, but another storm system will visit Thursday night and Friday.
The upside? It's likely we'll have a clear weekend, Davis said.
